ComposHer: celebrating the work of women media composers

Out of the top 250 films from 2018, 94% were scored by men 
 (according to the New York Times). 

But there are moves afoot to increase the visibility of women media composers, in 2018 there was the establishment of a global database of women composers on FreeTheBid.com (an organisation giving voice to women filmmakers in TV and advertising), and the establishment of a UK women composers forum. 

Now, on 12 June 2019 there is a chance to hear what young women composers in the media have been up to. ComposHer at EartH Theatre, Hackney on 12 June 2019, will feature music by women composers for film, TV and video games, aiming to both celebrate the work of women media composers and to inspire a new generation of composers.

Featured composers include Jessica Curry, Nainita Desai, Imogen Heap, Jessica Jones, Alev Lenz, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Anne Nikitin, Carly Paradis, Jocelyn Pook, Kate Simko, Claire M Singer, and Amelia Warner, with genres ranging from classical to electronic and alternative, and performers will include the London Contemporary Orchestra.

Further information and tickets from the website.
